The mountainous country of Afghanistan has never reached a true prosperous state as it is patterned with the fate of civil unrest and warfare. From the time of Alexander the Great's attempted conquest to the war occurring right now, this landlocked country remains in turmoil. Join us as we investigate these foreign affairs and come to better understand this country and how its existence affects ours.
